My entry for the LPS Blog Card Sketch Contest

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I had to work Thanksgiving Day however we celebrated the following day. It was a delicious meal if I say so myself. So now it is finding recipes for leftover turkey. We have done turkey hash. Tomorrow is turkey pot pie. Then I think we will be turkey'd out. I completed all of the November 2 a week challenge with no skips. So the creative juices have been flowing from me recently. Let me show you a touch of what I have done.

First off Life Preservers is doing a card sketch contest for November. Here is my card I just completed for that using the November Card Kit. I am not a big Graphic 45 fan but really loved how this turned out. Took the picture at night so it isn't the greatest.
I did this page using a 52 Sketches 52 Weeks sketch. I just got word that Julie will not being doing this site next year. I have just really gotten into her sight so I am a little bummed.
I made mini albums for the coaches for the Comets cheerleaders. 10 to be exact. The star-shaped album was for the director. I used my Bind It All, 7 Gypsies stickers, Shimmerz mist, Thickers, Sports Mania cricut cartridge, and some Basic Grey.

I utilized the Studio Calico December 2008 kit for this page done for my Willow Traders 2 a week challenge using a sketch provided.
Lastly I joined another kit club. The Making Memories paper did it. I love their paper. This is the December Kit of The Scrapbook Nook. I am not crazy about the bag that the kit came in. It is not reseal-able and falls apart but other than that I am pleased. The message board on there has a wonderful group of ladies and they have some amazing stuff posted that the DT has done with this kit.

As you can see I have been scrapbooking tons of Christmas pictures. Some are from a couple years ago. But it feels good to get these pictures done. Thanks for perusing my creations.

Twelve Fridays Giveaway

Twelve Fridays is doing another weekend getaway in Pigeon Forge, TN. You now have a chance to win an entry to the event. It was great last year. I completed an entire 12 by 12 album. The product they used was amazing. The food was decent. And the ladies were a hoot! I would love to go again. We just have to wait and see. But if you are looking for a fun getaway check it out.

Also I finished the October THAW challenge with NO skips. Yes you heard me right NO skips. I have come to realize should I ever want to put a dent into my photographs I need to do more than one picture one page layouts.

I hosted a challenge on Life Preservers for their crop weekend before last. My challenge was to find someone whose album started with same letter as yours and lift that page. I got to lift 1CC (Chris) and what an honor it was. Go to Life Preservers to see her original page.

This page was done for one of the Willow Traders challenges to use either denim or predominantly blue on your page. I really like how this turned out.
For the Life Preserver crop a sketch was drawn by ScrapSketch's Stephanie Vaughn. Here is my utilization of that Sketch!
And one of the THAW challenges was to take a magazine and "lift" a page out of it. This is the magazine and page that I lifted from with the page I created to follow. A Scrapbook Trends magazine was used and the page is from Maria Burke.

Thanks for looking at some of my creations. This month has really gotten the juices flowing!! Now if I can just keep my head above water to continue with this mojo. LOL
